With all the legal wrangling going on between The Trust and The Arf Society (and legal bullying with just about every other cover/tribute band and various weblogs), it’s important to review exactly, and objectively, what’s at stake in these proceedings. Primarily, the freedom to play and experience Frank Zappa’s music live (as it should be experienced). Really, imagine a world in which only one performer is allowed to perform, say, the works of Igor Stravinsky? Or Eric Dolphy? Or Frank Zappa (or only one website being the sole source of FZ information)?
